Caption Contest: Wild Kingdom Edition

Longtime readers will recall with fondness our old caption contests, the entries for which were lost in the Great Comments Wipe-Out of '05. Since then, and since the end of the presidential campaign season, not much has passed through the ol' in box or across the screen that has been deemed worthy of the next contest.

But the wait is over.

Since you have all been working so hard politically and academically here lately, here's a chance to flex those creative muscles. For background, here's the story: Python Explodes After Eating Alligator.

Feel free to use your best mixed metaphors to turn the following photo into a savvy political or pop-cultural joke. As always, caption suggestions should be entered in the comments section, below:

So THAT'S what happens when a snake sheds it's skin. New skin my ass. . . .

"Creationism proved: aligator bursts forth from snake"

Or

"Evolution proved: aligator born from the stomach of snake. Four-legged animal evolves from no-legged animal"

Along the same lines:

"Intelligent design my a**"

Along different lines:

"His izod was bigger than his stomach"

cd said...

Is that the same snake that had the apple? I thought I recognized him from my children's illustrated Bible . . .

cd said...

jbl - I'm declaring you the early front-runner for the izod caption.

readers - the bar has been set.

Woohoo! The things you can do when you're sleep deprived and procrastinating! (that's not a caption, there's no indication that the python or the alligator was sleep deprived)

The inspiration for Jimmy Choo's fall line of mix and match animal skin boots. Why should a girl have to choose her reptile?

"This year, the gator was sure his costume would win first place."
